Post Plane Issues
Posted 14 November 2012 - 10:12 PM
as of lately I have been able to keep my bowels somewhat in order, and I try never to fly (fear of flying). I travel a lot for work yet try to stay near by so I can drive and have never really had a problem going to the bathroom once home.
So I'm wondering... Is it the altitude that is upsetting my stomach? I've tried so hard to 'go' since returning 2 days ago.

Now I would try using the extra fiber and softeners to help you go. You might need to use an Osmotic laxative if you still cannot go after that.

I'm flying again next week so should I use stool softeners before the flight or after ( its a 3hr flight)? I don't want to have them kick in mid-air!

And try to relax.. I know it is hard. But you have plenty of company... Many many folks (even those without IBS) have some constipation issues when they travel.
